Globalism has its well-publicized dark side, which no one illustrates better than anti-
corporate activist pranksters the Yes Men, who infiltrate boardrooms across the globe, drawing attention to the issues with antics like masquerading as McDonalds representatives and unveiling their plan for eliminating Third World starvation by implementing a human-waste recycling plan into McDonalds outlets located in poverty-stricken areas (essentially suggesting that the poor should eat their own poop to survive). The Yes Men wont be at BLVD gallerys latest opening, Trade Bloc, but their spirit will: The group show of global ambitions explores the more colorful side effects of a world marketwith nine pop artists representing seven countries. Born from ongoing discussions of a shrinking worlds influence on art, this crews selections afford a chance to scope a varied cross section of current cultural works, and draw conclusions of your own. Show continues through March 8.
